I find it interesting that all of these posts are from people with homes.

I live in an apartment and am on the verge of a nervous breakdown.

If it's not stupid college kids (Let's all give a big shout out to Embry-Riddle University)with their music/computers/home theater system; then it's the stoner who leaves his (apparently broken) bathroom fan running for 6+ hours.

Like I said, this is an apartment, so there can be NO building of fences, putting in new windows, etc.  If you have noisy neighbors in a HOME, call the police. Yes, that's really part of their job. If you think you have it bad in your HOME, sell it and rent an apartment. Then you can experience TRULY
noisy neighbors.

check out www.acousticsciences.com abd go to outdoor products. go to sound absorbing slat fence. haven't installed, but this sounds promising and not a fortune.

The the simplist way is to find a solution by calling us and discussing the issues and the options.

There are no hard and fast rules on this subject.

Checked out the SoundFence by acoustic sciences.  Sounds like the perfect solution for me, however it DOES cost a small fortune.  I need 5 8ft wide by 6 ft high panels.  The cost = $11 a square foot.  Final cost for me $2500.00.  My thoughts are that I could make my own a lot cheaper.

The most economical and effective soud blocking "fence" is a concrete filled cement block wall.  It will give you a 50 STC wall.  It will need to be at least 8' high.  Wood and vinyl fences are not effective in blocking sound.

Well most cities have noise ordinances, so you could call the police if your neighbors violate it, though that is usually only for certain hours.  I live close to three houses with decks that are right below my bedroom.  The houses are small and go on the market regularly.  I notify the realtors that this neighborhood has a zero tolerance for barking dogs and loud noise so at least when people move in they are aware that noise is an issue.  Realtors have to disclose "hostile neighbors" which I am for inconsiderate neighbors.  Otherwise, I'm very friendly. There is a website for noise in general that gives pointers.

The "guest" reply to this "guest" entry contains pertinent information.  An open lattice installed above the existing "good neighbor" wood fence could help but only with MLV in alternating sections.  This could reflect some of the unwanted sound back from where it came and still allow sight lines.
